At this time of year I find it is good to reflect upon the last twelve months and look forward to what the new year will bring... Here are some of my highlights of 2017 -
The beginning of the year is always a busy time, in January we start our sale and the new season deliveries start to arrive...
In February, Eden was joined by our latest intern Alana, studying fashion management at RGU in Aberdeen.
It was also trade show time - we visited Moda and went to many buying appointments too!
March saw the more of our new season deliveries arrive, again busy unpacking, steaming and merchandising the stock.
In April we held a fashion show inside the boutique (a first for us!). It was a great success even though it was a bit of work to get organised!
May was holiday time for us and we jetted off to Rhodes for a well earned break (and much needed sunshine)
June was spent researching new labels and planning for the next season ahead.
in July it was independent retailer month with independents day on the 4th of July (of course!)
August was tradeshow time again, this time buying for Summer 2018! We visted Pure in London
and met up with Nomads. (left to right, Kate, Vicky and Sian)
October brought darker days and nights but our Doris and Dude socks certainly brightened up our feet!
November saw our party wear arriving - lots of lush velvet and tactile fabrics
To end the year, we held another fashion show at Eden in December...
News for 2018 ...
As of the New Year we're going to trial Sunday opening (but will be closed on Mondays instead). We will be open from 12 - 5 on Sundays starting Sun 8th Jan.
What are your plans for the year ahead?
Roll on 2018! Wishing you all a very happy and prosperous one!
